Ferenc Liszt Airport, Budapest
Airport concrete to be broken up for terminal expansion
KÉSZ Építő Co. Ltd. has commenced construction of the new pier to be connected to Terminal 2B of Ferenc Liszt Airport. The new passenger pier – fully financed by Budapest Airport – is expected to be completed in one and a half years and will increase the passenger area of Terminal 2B by more than 10 thousand square meters. Construction works of the 220-meter-long new pier have been started – concrete as massive as the one being broken up on the apron of Terminal 2 may be found at few other places. Only two months ago aircraft were still using the area, and the hall of basic boarding gates that was used to be called ‘tin-plate terminal’ by the public was still in operation. Today, the worksite was inaugurated ceremonially by Budapest Airport as developer and KÉSZ Építő Co. Ltd. as contractor. Budapest Airport commissioned Prima-Primissima-winner architect Zoltán Tima and the team of KÖZTI who designed SkyCourt that was handed over six years ago to design the new wing in line with the principles of functionality, passenger comfort, and the best price/value ratio while maintaining the architectural unity of the terminal. The passenger pier will be a combination of fair-faced concrete, steel, and glass, and its style will merge the architectural features of SkyCourt and Terminal 2B. Interior finishes such as the floor will reflect the SkyCourt vibe while the external aluminum panels are aligned with the façade of Terminal 2B. One of the most important elements of the 50-billion-HUF development program called BUD 2020 is Pier B, said Jost Lammers, the CEO of Budapest Airport. The project is scheduled to be completed by the middle of the summer in 2018. The new pier will ensure significantly more boarding gates; it will offer via 10 new boarding bridges 27 boarding options (through boarding bridge, by bus, or on foot). Budapest Airport is financing the project itself, dedicating considerable resources of its own to develop the capital airport gateway to Hungary and to contribute to the Hungarian economy as a whole, added Jost Lammers. “We do believe that our return to the airport after the successful completion of SkyCourt in 2011 is not just a mere coincidence. We have just started the construction of Pier B, an 11 000 sq meter large passenger area at Budapest Airport.” said László Szalados, CEO of KÉSZ Építő Co. Ltd. He added: “As earlier with SkyCourt we make maximum effort with our resources and expertise to construct a first class building that meets all possible requirements without interfering with daily passenger traffic of the airport.”

Bridge on I-B state road no. 23
Reconstruction of the bridge over the Western Morava River began in mid-May 2016, according to a project that was developed by “Filos engineering”. The investor of the work is JP “Roads of Serbia”. The reconstruction project included the rehabilitation of key parts of the bridge on which the damage was observed during the expertise the bridge in 2012.
Primary reconstruction consisted of making a new deck slab by adding 7560 pcs of anchors for the connection with the old concrete and creating a new 12 cm thick layer of concrete, removing old asphalt, removing the old pedestrian paths and creating the new ones, repair abutments and creating a the cross-beams, lifting the ending portions of the bridge and replacement of bearings and expansion joints, creating the cross beams in the bridge and work around the remediation pillars by the mantle around them in the height of 2,5 m.
During reconstruction works and after the sand-blasting of the elements over the river, it was found that the bridge is in worse condition than it was anticipated in the project, so that the newly discovered damage expanded the volume of the works by 30% approx.
It was found that the cables on the longitudinal box girder assembly element above the water broke from the impact of salt and loads, as well as the supporting pillars S3 and S4.
After the new expertise and new technical solutions approached the rehabilitation of the same by adding new prestressing cables inside the longitudinal box girder and extension poles lining with the addition of the new metal framework that can withstand the calculated loads.
Also, due to the poor condition of the abutments, started the construction of the 8 new pillars for reinforcement of the abutments using the newly installed anchors for the connection between the old and new concrete as well as the development of the new cross beams for interconnect of the newly built columns.
The planned works according to the original design, with these new changes disrupted the schedule of the works due to the serious approach to finding technical solutions for the rehabilitation of the newly formed damages.
